Virginia Woolfs Diary Volume 3 - Sunday 17 May, 1925

Here is another glimpse of the multi-faceted Woolf:

"A little girl on the bus asked her mother how many inches are there in a mile. Her mother repeated this to me...the little girl (see my egotism) with her bright excitable eyes, & eagerness to grasp the whole universe reminded me of myself, asking questions of my mother".

I think Woolf retained this ability to wonder and see things as a child throughout her life.
